Summary Emerging Media provides an understanding of media use in the expanding digital age and fills the void of existing literature in exploring the emerging new media use as a dynamic communication process in cyberspace. It addresses emerging media dynamics during the second decade of online communication, the Web 2.0 era after Mosaic and Netscape. The current status of emerging media development calls for extended exploration of how emerging media are used in different patterns and contexts, and this volume answers that call; it is comprehensive examination of emerging media evolution and concurrent social interaction. Emerging Media has three primary features: * Provides a comprehensive analysis of digital media use and online communication with empirical data * Contains studies that are both theoretical and empirical.
